Help for Men

Although research shows that most domestic violence is directed at women, there are also male victims of domestic violence, in both heterosexual and gay relationships. We believe that everyone has the right to live in safety, free from fear – regardless of their gender.

Telling somebody that your partner is abusing you is difficult; you might feel ashamed, embarrassed or worry that you will not be taken seriously. But for all victims of domestic violence the advice is the same – you are not alone and there is help available.

For more information you can visit the ManKind website or for advice and support contact Men’s Advice Line.

For practical and emotional support locally, call Victim Support on 440496, or contact Sanctuary Trust on 743732.

If you have been a victim of a sexual assault or abuse you can contact Jersey Action Against Rape (JAAR) on their helpline 482800 for free counselling.

If you recognise that your behaviour needs to change to keep your partner safe from emotional, psychological or physical harm, please call ADAPT 07797732207 for help and information.

Domestic Violence is any form of physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse which is used to gain power and control over the other person in an intimate relationship.

Women often say emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse as it leaves no visible scars, is difficult to prove and can be very damaging.

Children living with domestic violence can also suffer in a variety of ways; either by witnessing violence itself, by being used as emotional pawns or indirectly by the stress suffered by their mother.
